    Summary

    Shy, quiet Hyeju loves being by herself, and writing poetry. It is something she will NEVER share with others, as it is her escape from the world, and something that allows her to be herself. That will change when she forgets her journal at the local bookstore, and it is discovered by the confident, bubbly Chaewon, who finds herself enamored with its contents, and possibly the one who wrote it.

    Hyeju is left with no choice of escaping the inquisitive, eager girl when they are required to spend time together at the bookstore. It will be hard, but Chaewon is determined to get the mysterious secret poet to talk to her, while Hyeju just wants to be left alone.

    Summary

    “Just an awkward clasp?”

    “Yeah,” she says, holding her hair up off her nape. “Can’t ever seem to get it to stay right.”

    “I see it,” Kate says, and the backs of their fingers brush warm against her neck. “Lucky I’ve got short nails, eh?”

    She tamps down a tiny shiver that runs electric up her spine when the side of Kate’s hand leans against her nape for a moment. Just by the vertebrae, where she’s sure she’s got a knot from perpetually having her head down in a book or her laptop. And she’s never been more aware of the way the neckline dips in the back of this jumper, leaving a small section between her shoulder blades exposed. Bare, for the warmth of Kate’s hands and breath to ghost over it and make her swallow, looking up politely at the row of ivy leaves along the cornices, mouth pressed closed.

    “That’s a really nice jumper,” Kate says, sounding oddly tongue-tied.

    “It’s Primark.”

    Summary

    Mickey Milkovich owns a small bookshop near the campus of Northwestern University.

    This story should feel like the perfect autumnal drink of hot tea, all lemony and sweet at the same time. Romantic, seasonal fluff with a guaranteed happy ending. There's no great plot, there's no amazing art, just a fic that feels like fall.

    Summary

    Dear Wilbur,

    Fuck it, I miss you.

    I miss the you that would play your guitar outside Puffy’s diner while waiting for my shift to end.

    I miss the you that would drag me to the beach to read me poetry when I didn’t understand it because I just “wasn’t in the right atmosphere”.

    I miss the you that taught me how to climb on top of Sam’s garage using the old oak tree to look at stars.

    I’m sorry you’re too stuck up your own ass to see that. I’m sorry I “dream too big” and I’m sorry you’re too scared to actually do anything with your life. That’s not my problem anymore.

    I’ve cashed in my plane ticket. I’m leaving for Florida tomorrow morning and going to university there. If you cared about yourself you’d come too. If you cared about me you’d at least say goodbye.

    Your brother,
    Tommy

    Summary

    Harry stares at the scrawl of neatly slanted handwriting, imprinted on crisp white paper that hadn’t been torn from a notebook like his own. He slumps back against his pillows, reads the letter again, and his grin grows so wide that it actually hurts his cheeks.

    He’s definitely royalty. Has to be.

    When he sits up again, he grabs the yellow notepad from his desk, bites the lid off of his black biro pen, and he starts scribbling.

    --

    Summer, 1980. Harry is floating between university and becoming a Real Certified Adult. He's not ready. He really isn't.

    In a desperate attempt to have the Best Last Summer ever, he takes a casual job at his godfather's bookshop in London, starts an illicit pen pal affair with a wordy posh boy that he's catching feelings for, all while dealing with the son of Sirius's business rival, one Draco Malfoy, insufferable know-it-all extraordinaire.

    A story about trying to figure out who you are, where you're going in life, and who you want to take along with you.

    Summary

    Henry has always been entranced by the transformative power of stories; the way a happy ending can heal an ache better than any medicine.

    He never set out to run a bookshop, but when he’d ended up with an obscenely large inheritance and an expanding cavity in his chest before he was even old enough to drink, there was only one thing that he wanted to do, only one way he wanted to fill the void: he wanted to be surrounded by the one place that had always felt like home – between the covers of a book. No matter the time period or genre, Henry has always found a home in books.

    Summary

    Hermione Granger was sure about a few things in her life.

    The list of things would grow over the years, and some of them did change. But there was one thing that would never change… Draco Malfoy was her soulmate.

    And of all the bookstores in London, she walked into the one he owns.

    He's spent the last six years of his life looking for ways to sever their bond. And only after his soulmate walks into his bookstore five years after the war ended does he start questioning what he really wants in life.

    A ten chapter story (plus an epilogue) about universal truths, accepting love, and the journey it takes for two idiots to get there.
